With Galaxy S6, Samsung had succeeded in shaking away the bad reputation of making cheap and ugly phones as compared to Apple and HTC. But the phone came with a number of flaws which left many of the buyers not impressed. This was so with the exclusion of expandable storage, waterproofing and the poor battery life. From that perspective the just announced Galaxy S7 and Galaxy s7 edge at the Mobile World Congress have tried to address those issues.

Samsung has announced two variants of the S7, that is Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge. Both share almost identical specs, apart from screen sizes. The S7 rings in 5.1-inches, while s7 edge comes with slightly larger screen size at 5.5-inches. Both S7 variants are packed with microSD slot, bigger battery, awesome camera, and waterproofing.
